Fir and British Tan Large Kilty

A combination of a wallet and a purse, the Kilty has a place for everything and everything in its place.

One of its signature design elements is the kilty on each end of the bag. A kilty is a small kilt and is sometimes seen on shoes or boots.

When it was sold new in the 1980s, the Large Kilty came with a coin purse, a removable checkbook cover, and a sliding shoulder pad.

Often one or more of these items are missing in a used bag.

The Large Kilty is model number 45 and when the bag has British Tan trim, the designation is R in front of the number.
